    Limited Deal at Amazon for the ASUS ROG Strix X570-E MB. It just went live. Normally $330, so that puts it 20 less than even MC with their bundle discount (30).

    ASUS ROG Strix X570-E Gaming ATX Motherboard with PCIe 4.0, Aura Sync RGB Lighting, 2.5 Gbps and Intel Gigabit LAN, WiFi 6 (802.11Ax), Dual M.2 with Heatsinks, SATA 6GB/S and USB 3.2 Gen 2

    This board has an EK Monoblock hitting retail soon as well.

    Got a question, is the price difference between the asus mobo and lets say the Gigabyte X570 Aorus Elite Wi-Fi and the ASUS X570 TUF Gaming-Plus Wi-Fi , reason i ask is im upgrading from a 2500k intel and a Z68 Asrock board so needless to said is time for and upgraded I am planing on getting a 3900x later but for no i was looking in to a 3600x

    There are not enough lanes on the platform to support 3 m.2. off the cpu. This is not threadripper. Any x570 that has a 3rd m.2 is connected to the chipset.

    This Strix-e is in a higher class than the other two you mentioned obviously since it has every bell and whistle. It's the cheapest of the ROG which has the same vrm setup of the top end CH line.

    Yes I realize that. Still doesn't change the fact I need three m.2

    I believe the master only disabled 2 sata ports if using the 3rd pcie slot.

    I thought the same thing as I currently own the Master, but just looked at the Ultra manual and it indeed shows the same thing on page 21.

    Edit - Or I suppose you're not wrong. I missed the note at the bottom"The M2C_SOCKET connector supports up to PCIe x2 SSDs only", which is really terrible. Thanks for making me feel even better about my decision to go with the Master.

    The last pcie slot is off the chipset with all the storage and connectivity, so it's all the same handicap any way we slice.

    I'm not sure exactly what the difference is between this and the $100 more expensive CH8 (Wifi). They look almost identical in feature set. I had the CH8 previously, but I definitely would have bought this at this price instead.

    Yea, this. I got this board myself specifically because it was cheaper yet had all the same features and vrm setup. The only downside is the lack of a vrm block. But as it turns out EK is producing a monoblock for this board. I'm sure Asus is not too thrilled about it.

    The only thing I see that stands out is the onboard buttons on the CH8...hardly worth $100 IMO.

    I had a finicky experience in the past with X470 and ASRock and memory compatibility which kind of makes me gun shy (my comparable CH7 had much better memory compatibility with the same components), but if I needed triple m.2, I'd definitely give this one a look.

    I understand i was gonna jump on the Asus but the Asrock seem like a better deal for my wallet ,also as i previously stated on first post i had been running and Asrock Z68 for a long time and never had no problems

    Lets be real though, this board doesn't need a monoblock. With an overclocked 3950x you will not be pushing the vrm's to any unsafe temperatures.

    Unless I'm thinking of the wrong board, then it might need a monoblock, lol.

    Read review that it uses the same VRM As the $100 cheaper x570 Tuf board which ended it for me lol.

    It doesn't. The use of that VRM stops at the STRIX F.

    The Strix E gets something else (a little closer to the CH7 if I can read specs properly, but I honestly can't tell part differences apart).

    This. It uses same parts but the number of phases is one lower iirc.

    Yep, I think buildzoid mentions a few times over the different x570 boards, that they are basically all overkill for the Ryzen 3000 series.

    For sure, overkill is underrated and monoblocks are always sexy. A PITA, but sexy if nothing else.

    I’m using a Strix 570-E myself and for all of the features I cared about, it’s basically a CH8 Hero WIFi. Board has been great for me, ASUS has been releasing fast FW updates for it and the BIOS has worked well. Good port layout on the back and the USB 3.1 connector isn’t blocked by the GPU *cough* Taichi with a port layout designed by an intern *cough*

    Also I love having the CPU temp on the QCode LED :D

    Lmao, the video on the vrm stages. The guy was just so bothered by the Strix-E. The Strix-E is the CH Hero Wifi for those who don't care about the name.


    Here's mine. There's two 480s in there. Leftovers from when I used to run quads.

    I have a gigabyte Aorus gaming 5 WiFi, not really sure if it’s worth the money to upgrade, I need all the USB ports the gigabyte loves to give, oculus rift loves USB ports ;)
    And what more boost would my 2700x get 50-100mhz? I’d be lucky to sell my board and have the $80 after shipping and I’d have a $200 hole in my pocket lol.

    Gaming 5 has 9 rear USB ports, the strix E 7,
    I think I’m using all 9, and can’t use the front 3.0 on my case because the bottom fans in the way

    Not worth the upgrade unless you're
    gunning for a 12 or 16 core with a massive overclock, or if you run lots of M2 / PCIE devices.

    I wonder how used is used...? Either which way, that's a good price.

    I got my CH7 off a forum member here for $200-220 range near the end of last year.

    I don't think ASUS cares. Virtually no one puts a block on a VRM nor looks for one as a selling point that's before we get into it being completely unnecessary.

    I’ve had bad customer service experiences with Asus... not a knock on their products which are great. Just their Cs lol.
